Maintenance Care Guide

Proper maintenance is ideal on all cars, but even more so on ceramic coated vehicles to ensure the best results and greatest longevity of the paint coating. While I understand that everyone is busy and time is a premium, the following schedule is the ideal maintenance plan and the closer you are able to stick to it, the better and longer your coating (or sealant) will perform. All maintenance products mentioned are what I personally use and keep in stock for your needs as well.

Weekly or BI-Weekly

Washing

  • Wash vehicle using a two-bucket method and a pH neutral soap like Shine Supply Shift OR

  • Wash vehicle using a rinseless method and a rinseless wash concentrate like American Detailer Garage (ADG) Wipeout

  • Always wash from the top down leaving the dirtiest sections for the end of the wash

  • Avoid washing in direct sunlight to ensure water doesn’t air dry on the paint, potentially leaving water spots

Drying

  • Always fully dry your vehicle after washing to avoid potential water spots

  • Compressed air/blowers aid in removal of water with minimal contact to the paint

  • Use soft, clean, high quality microfiber drying towels with minimal pressure for any residual water

Quarterly

  • Use all washing techniques listed above

  • Apply a quick, sprayable, easy to use booster like ADG Valor or IGL Enhancer to help aid/boost the protection
